Reflecting on Colour
Pablo Picasso said, "Colors are only symbols. Reality is to be found in luminance alone. When I run out of blue, I use red."
If one says "Red" – the name of color – and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different. -Josef Albers
All colors will agree in the dark. -Francis Bacon
Drawing is feeling. Color is an act of reason. -Pierre Bonnard
There is no model; there is only color. -Paul Cezanne
I cannot pretend to be impartial about the colors. I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns.
There are connoisseurs of blue just as there are connoisseurs of wine. -Colette
Color is the language of the poets. -Keith Crown
Anything can be any color at any time depending on what color everything else is at the time. -Keith Crown
Everything utilitarian needs a little red edge. -Reno Dakota
In autumn you can take one maple leaf and see almost all the colors of the rainbow in it – although you would need your imagination to see blue. -Dorothy Eisenhardt
Colors are light's suffering and joy. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Red protects itself. No color is as territorial. It stakes a claim, is on the alert against the spectrum. -Derek Jarman
Raw umber is my favorite color. Whenever I see that color, I can see and smell leaves and new beginnings. Color is felt, after all.
